Design & Fabrication of Textured Concrete Panel
University of Michigan
Description: Concrete is not only used as the load-bearing material in a structural system but can also be the final finish of the buildings. This project looked at the design and process of adding a specific finish to a concrete panel. A concrete panel with wooden finishes was fabricated. A formwork was made and the appropriate concrete mix was calculated. Once the concrete was poured it was treated and ultimately the formwork was removed to view the result.
